Patients with symptoms who require an urgent visit will need to wear a mask during an in-person appointment. Patients who do not require an urgent visit will be rescheduled for a telehealth visit (see below). If you think you may have been exposed to the new coronavirus, COVID-19 (either through travel to a high risk area or close contact with a person who has tested positive for COVID-19), please contact us before visiting.
University of Colorado has also implemented increased restrictions for visitors. View restrictions.
Routine-care appointments such as women's wellness exams will be delayed or rescheduled for a future date. For other health concerns, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
